India’s Most Fearless Free download ´ 104 The Army major who led the legendary September 2016 surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the LoC; a soldier who killed 11 terrorists in 10 days; a Navy officer who sailed into a treacherous port to resc. The book features fourteen true stories of extraordinary courage and fearlessness displayed by the Indian armed forces as they discharge their duties whether eliminating threats to the Indian sovereignty on Indian or foreign soil rescuing Indian and foreign citizens trapped in war torn Yemen trying to survive certain death due to technical glitches or even fighting the elements of nature Some made the supreme sacrifice in the service of the nation leaving behind grieving families and colleagues As one CO wrote to a martyr s wife Grief will fade away and when it s gone only one thing will remain pride Along with the stories I also enjoyed reading the introduction by the authors and the foreword by General Bipin Rawat Chief of the Army Staff of the Indian ArmyThe introduction raises some relevant points which sheds light on the irony and hypocrisy that surrounds the narrative around the Indian Armed Forces Whenever a soldier dies in the line of duty we get some TV or newspaper coverage around the event people would eulogize the martyrs on social media and the average citizen would feel very patriotic Then the social media activists or warriors would come online and we have a war between pro army and anti army people Then everything is forgotten and we move on with our lives The fact is that our actors sports stars politicians and even reality TV people enjoy coverage and recall than our soldiersThe authors also state that the godlike portrayal of the soldiers in the media I would say that our movies have greater responsibility for this we tend to forget that they are human beings too with everyday responsibilities repaying home loan installments taking care of aged parents resolving a tiff with a girlfriend and so onThe best point raised by the authors in the introduction The truth is that India remains constantly at war something we seldom rememberThe foreword by Gen Rawat which includes poetry by Rabindranath Tagore and a uote by Gandhiji was also good to readI am not going into the individual stories but will add that they are well written and easy to read The book is only 270 odd pages long and can be read uite uickly The stories also feature the cross border surgical strikes executed by the Indian Special Forces and the story of Lance Naik Hanamanthappa Koppad the man who survived six days under than 25 feet of snow at temperature of 40 oC Unfortunately he passed away later in hospitalI appreciate that the authors also portrayed the human side of the soldiers Col Santosh Yashwant Mahadik was a visionary who tried to bridge the gap between the army and the Kashmiris through various social initiatives and such was his rapport with some of the latter that even local politicians were concerned Havildar Hangpan Dada was a pastor in his unit church and was an avid snake keeper Lance Naik Mohan Nath Goswami was a kind man who helped the needy and was in the process of building a bigger house for his family Major Varadaranajan used to say that the toughest battle of his life was making his parents agree to his marriage to a woman from a different community the list goes on The authors tried to bring out the emotions but kept melodrama at bayI would also say that the families of the soldiers are heroes in their own right Not only do they live with constant fear they also have to live with the grief of losing their loved ones Major Varadarajan s daughter hides her late father s pictures so that her mother and grandparents don t feel sad But some carry on with the tradition Col Mahadik s wife joined the army as an officer Lance Hanamanthappa s wife wants their daughter to join the forces and there are numerous other families where children continue the tradition of national service just like their parents

India’s Most Fearless Free download ´ 104 Most Fearless covers fourteen true stories of extraordinary courage and fearlessness providing a glimpse into the kind of heroism our soldiers display in unthinkably hostile conditions and under grave provocati. An average book of average stories full of emotions and lacks actionWhat I didn t likeThe first chapter on surgical strike had too much of background and context setting but too little details on actual executionThe rescue mission from war zone without firing even a single shot and even by taking permission to dock the ship for 4 hours I have read real missions performed by other country to rescue hundred thousands and by fighting their way in and out of war Zone3 chapters has euipment malfunctioning survival stories which is just pathetic For instance an aircraft malfunctioned on non mission flight and how pilot survived to come out of itEncounter and shoot out of 2 3 terrorists using than 5 times of manpower and that too with casualtiesFull repetitive ranks mentioned of the officer even what was their rank then and now when the book was published in all Stories as whenever author refers to a character in narration May be this because I was born and brought up in defence as my parents were in one of the 3 main armed forces of the country so I don t get fascinated by the ranks and felt irritated by this approach of writer after a whileWhat I likedThe attempt made to showcase valour and courage of various soldiers on which whole country have proud there are moments which will give you goosebumps on the courage shown by them But are very fewThe best chapter among all these is the northeast surgical strike mission explainedThe author has tried the best to put emotions as much as possible everywhere he got the chance in story which seems little annoying after a bit it won t be wrong to say that it is full emotions and lacks actions Overall it s an average book if you have read Mossad and compare with it in terms of missions details and writing style otherwise you may like it to be the best as mostly I can see in other reviews

Most stories of the armed forces come up during Republic Day when media finally takes off its attention from steamy news and play its patriotic card These news are melodramatic full of tears and chest beating episode but never about the actual event When the parade closes the curtains come down The story remains untold unread and un googled It does come up right after an event though but than covering ground reality newsrooms throng with all sorts of people trying to be heard or shouting an opinion The concentration from the one who lost his life shifts to the policies the rules the regulations the governance but hardly on the team the buddy pair and the officers that were on the groundShiv Aroor and Rahul Singh s India s Most Fearless are the stories we left behind in the Republic Day parade of the cold January morning because it has never affected one s personal lives The book gives us an encounter of what actually happened on ground Who knew what went behind the surgical strike or the last minute details that was planned but had to be changed What is most interesting about the stories is that one can t stop noticing how each member of the armed forces stand up for each other fight every odds and work as a team The stories are crisp and not romanticized you don t hear pianos and violins playing in the background but you hear gunshots and blasts That s how real it gets What are also captivating are the conditions in which they stay so far away from civilization in crazy weather conditionsIn short it s a great book to get a uick glimpse about the people who are safeguarding our countryMy take The book is well crafted However inspite of best efforts by the author to bring the stories of raw courage and unflinching conviction towards duty these stories are just a drop in the ocean of huge personal sacrifices made by Indian Armed Forces in upholding the sovereignty of India Many stories will still remain untold and unheard While the successes in battles and wars will continue to be celebrated and remembered during Independence and Republic days but the stories of individual courage will be forgotten and will find no mention except for war diaries of the units and obituariesI fear to pick up a book by an Indian author I dread the language and the effort one puts on making it into a Bollywood movie What works for me is that the book is a page turner I m neither carried away by complicated vocabulary nor blinded by over emotional story of how the jawan said Jai Hind in his last breath The book may not represent what really happens on ground in its entirety but is a good induction to some of the operations that we heard aboutRecommended for all especially to those who are so dead against the army Read it like a novel and make judgments laterdwi chekla
